Subject: [Rails] help with date formats
i have a datetime field in my database that i need broken up.
i want to
display the date and the time in separate places. i tried looking
through the api, but couldn’t find what i was looking for.

Take a look at strftime in the ruby std api documentation, it has a lot
of options for various kinds of formatting.
time =
t.strftime(“Printed on %m/%d/%Y”) #=> “Printed on 06/06/06”
t.strftime(“at %I:%M%p”) #=> “at 08:06AM”

Hope that helps,
